Season 1

Save Me is an American television sitcom which follows an absentee wife and mother who, after nearly choking to death on a sandwich, becomes a direct pipeline to God and sets out to change her life and the lives of those around her as she strives to make amends to the people she has alienated over the years.

The series aired in the USA on NBC from 23 May to 13 June, 2013. Although 13 episodes were made, only seven aired in the USA.

Save Me premiered in South Africa on DStv's Sony Entertainment Television (SONY) channel on Monday 5 August 2013, at 20h00. New episodes broadcast in a double bill, weekly, with all 13 episodes airing.

Synopsis

Emmy nominee Anne Heche (Hung) stars as Beth Harper in this comedy about a not-so-ordinary Midwestern family.

After choking on a hero sandwich in her kitchen and suffering a dramatic near-death experience, Beth - an absentee wife and mother - is revived and claims she can now talk to God.

Her teenage daughter, Emily (Madison Davenport, Shameless), is horrified and her husband, Tom (Michael Landes, Final Destination 2), is skeptical.

To make matters worse, Tom's ex-mistress, Carly McKenna (Alexandra Breckenridge, American Horror Story), is in a coma after a close encounter with lightning in the Harper's front yard.

As Beth warms up to her new life, she strives to make amends to the people she has alienated over the years, including friends and neighbours Jenna Dennings (Heather Burns, Bored to Death) and Maggie Tompkins (Joy Osmanski, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia).

Despite everyone's initial hesitancy, Beth begins to win people over with her new positive attitude, cheerful optimism and unbridled love.

Save Me is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Original Film. Novelist John Scott Shepherd (Henry's List of Wrongs, The Days) created the show and serves as executive producer, along with director Scott Winant (Breaking Bad, True Blood).

Additional executive producers include Neal H. Moritz (The Big C, Prison Break), Vivian Cannon (The Big C), Alexa Junge (United States of Tara) and Darlene Hunt (The Big C), who also serves as showrunner.
